Be responsible and caring, get arrested.

WILMINGTON, Delaware, June 17, 2011 ( - A pro-life leader is preparing to fight charges that were laid against him after he noticed a suspicious package outside a Wilmington abortion clinic, and called for police help.

Kurt Linnemann, the executive director for the Maryland chapter of the Center for Bioethical Reform, says the incident occurred on June 10 outside a Wilmington Planned Parenthood where he normally keeps vigil every Friday.

In an email to supporters, Linnemann, 52, said that he “noticed an unusual cardboard box strategically placed about 15 feet in front of the main doors” of the clinic, and close to where he and a handful of other pro-lifers were standing.

The others agreed that the package was suspicious, and Linnemann called the police. “Knowing abortion mills have been the target of extremists bombing, I thought it best to call 911,” he wrote.

But after police came and found the package harmless, according to Linneman, things took an unexpected turn, as one officer told Linnemann to put his sign down and put his hands behind his back. “He aggressively grabbed my wrists and began to hand cuff me,” he said.

Linnemann says he was detained along with another pro-lifer at the scene, 25-year-old Sean Kovalevich. Linnemann says that, while he has had previous run-ins with the police, this arrest was particularly shocking. “They were very aggressive and very swift in arresting me and forcing me off the street, and that was a new twist for them,” he told (LSN).

Kovalevich told LSN that he attempted to film the arrest, but only managed to get a few seconds on film before police turned on him as well. “They just told me ... you have to stop filming now, you’re being detained, and they grabbed the camera, turned it off, and stuck it in my pocket,” he said.

Sean was released within twenty minutes. Linneman, however,was charged with “Disorderly Conduct - Create Hazard Physical Offensive Condition with no purpose,” following a two-hour detainment.

“I asked what I did, [and] he said that you called in a false bomb scare. I shook my head and said, ‘no I didn’t,’ [and] he corrected himself and said, ‘I guess you did not use the word bomb ... you called it a suspicious package,’” Linnemann reported.

When Linneman returned to the Planned Parenthood later that day, he says that a witness told him that a police officer had called a parking enforcement officer to have his van ticketed.

“While being arrested I told the officer I needed to put money in the meter and he said it will be taken care of ... I guess it was,” he wrote.

Linnemann says he was summoned to appear in court on June 23.

Both Linnemann and his attorney, Jim Haley, told that Wilmington police have a history of cooperating with Planned Parenthood to unfairly target pro-life witnesses outside the abortion clinic.

“It’s very disturbing,” said Haley. “The police have used any chance they have to discourage Kurt, discourage the pro-life protesters out there. Their first reaction is always to make life difficult for those folks.”

Haley pointed to a separate incident in August 2009 in which Kurt called police to report being assaulted by a customer at the clinic. Police wound up arresting and charging Kurt with two counts of harassment and one of offensive touching. The state threw out the first two charges, and the court found Linnemann not guilty on the third.

According to court documents, the plaintiff in that case said that he pressed charges solely because police advised him that counter-suing would provide a quick means of dodging an assault charge against himself.

“It appears whenever there is any kind of police involvement out there, they use it as a basis to charge a pro-lifer. It appears to be a pattern,” Haley said.

Kurt emphasized his reliance on prayer throughout the ordeal, something that continues to sustain him as he faces charges. “When I’m not in the spirit of God, I’m intimidated,” he said.

(End of story. My comments follow.)

It's "Death by a thousand financial cuts". This guy will continue to be busted, have to continue fighting bogus charges (which means keeping a lawyer working, they ain't cheap.) and continue pouring money down a black hole until he finally gives up.

Maybe Planned Parenthood pays for the donuts and coffee at the station house. Is this all a coincidence? Is it purely by chance a suspicious package is left where the prolifers will see it, report it and get immediately busted by the local cops? If you believe it is, I've some waterfront property in Florida you may be interested in buying. See me at low tide, we'll make a deal.

If the BS that the pro abort cops pull was bagged up, it would put the fertilizer factories out of business.

I keep finding things about charges being filed that are unsubstantiated and tossed out being filed against pro-lifers.

he should quote BIg Sister in court, when he says why he called it in.

IR, we're entering into another age of active persecution. We won't see much more of it regarding abortion, that battle is being won. But look for a real blowup over gay marriage & euthanasia. It's coming.

This doesn't surprise me, I've never seen any police departments treat abortion protesters with any respect whatsoever. This, I believe, is systemic in the police forces throughout the country.

WHT, thanks!

Mary Ellen/Nunly, in their defense I'll say that the local cops here in McKinney, TX are sympathetic. Dallas is a mixed bag, I've been at prayer vigils where the cops would be called on us and the attitude of "guilty till proven innocent" was very evident. On the other hand, I've been present when they showed up after a complaint and their attitude was "just doing our jobs folks, by the way how about those Mavericks?"

Next time, if any one sees a suspicious package at an abortion clinic, they should just walk away quickly and keep their mouths shut.

MRG, you bet. It almost isn't worth the hassle to try to be a decent citizen anymore.
